Making Time...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Today is my second half day back of work. Today was my first day of trying to fit in excercise in the new normal. Last wekk I was able to excercise after dropping my daughter at daycare, by taking little man and dog for a walk before it was 100+ degrees (I'm a weather whimp and I'll own it). I HATE heat and I don't really like the cold. I was determined today to make some time for me. So I am bloggin while my dear sweet husband gives our daughter a bath and little sleeps.

I was able to work out after picking T up at daycare, since little man fell asleep in the car (thank goodness as he was CRANKY all afternoon). T the "helped" me work out and we danced to a fitness video we downloaded to netflix. I didn't even realize Netflix had work out video's so when I read that on a message board here on Sparkpeople it made my day. T loves to dance and I enjoy it too, which made working out much more fun. I used to take hip hop classes at our local arts center, but my favorite teacher left and then I found out I was pregnant, and now there is a lack of money, so this is a great alternative. We also joined an indoor play place, as a family and I have been taking T on Sundays and we play hard for 2-4 hours. This wears her and I out and I had no idea how many calories it can burn.

What I also found helpful, since I only worked until noon today was as I was eating lunch, at 2pm, I half cooked dinner, so that all we had to do was finish it while I was working out. I don't know how I will continue this when I am working full days, but I have decided that with such a little baby I just cannot predict what I am going to do, but it will start to shape up eventually.

What do you do when you cannot schedule your life? What is a little thing you do to keep up being healthy?
